Support for Kari Birdseye & Terry Scott – our Benicia City Council candidates
(NOTICE: AUCTION EXTENDED TO 8PM ON THURS. AUG 15.)
Scores of Benicia artists have created original, handmade campaign yard signs to support our two favorite candidates, Kari Birdseye and Terry Scott which will be installed in yards all over town, and widely posted on social media.
From the Artists:“Our hope is that all the signs find homes in front of Benicia domiciles, and that we raise some serious money for the two campaigns. And finally we hope this helps get Kari and Terry seats on our City Council. Our vibrant and genuine affirmations in the form of campaign signs will balance the negative campaigning we may soon see from Big Oil interests. Thanks for your support ~ have fun bidding!”
Congratulations to our endorsed candidates, Mayor-elect Steve Young and Councilmember-elect Terry Scott!
Here are links to an important KQED report by Ted Goldberg, and other Benicia election details and analysis by Roger Straw on the Benicia Independent:
KQED: Candidate Targeted by Valero Wins Benicia Mayoral RaceNovember 5, 2020 Significant quote: “The fact that Young withstood the Valero PAC’s campaign is hugely significant, according to Matto Mildenberger, an assistant professor of political science at UC Santa Barbara, who focuses on oil politics. ‘It means that Benicia voters are willing to take their climate future into their own hands and are going to resist efforts by oil companies to control local politics.’” (continued)
